This is the funniest series of books I have ever read. My friend and I picked up this book at the book store and were on the floor in tears.

Anyone remember the song 'Constant Craving'? well, if i remember correctly, the words went as follows... 'Constant craving And I always will' or something like that... anyway, i thought it was 'And God sent gravy and He always will' that'll give you a laugh anytime! God sent GRAVY? ....right!

When I was about 3, in 1986, there was a song called 'Everytime you go away'. I would sing 'Everytime you go away, you take a piece of meat with you.' And the correct version is 'Everytime you go away, you take a piece of ME with you.' My mom still to this day will start singing it just to embarrass me.
